Frequent Questions

How must DMRs be submitted?

EPA recently published the NPDES Electronic Reporting Rule (‘‘final rule’’) to modernize CWA reporting for municipalities, industries, and other facilities by converting to an electronic data reporting system. This final rule requires NPDES permittees to start electronically submitting their reports (including DMRs) instead of submitting written paper reports. NPDES permittees may also seek a waiver from electronic reporting by submitting an electronic reporting waiver request to their NPDES permitting authority. NPDES permittees with an approved electronic reporting waiver can continue to use paper to submit their DMRs and other NPDES reports to their NPDES permit authority.
